SMOOTHIE!How about some tropical flavors in this hot weather? I have found this website and it posted an article just about smoothies! They all sound so great but I think this one pretty much beats the rest right now… A jungle smoothie. I think that sounds divine, but here is the link so that you can look at ALL of these fantastic smoothie recipes: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/29828/tropical_smoothie_recipes.html?cat=22

I hope you enjoy them. Here is the jungle smoothie:

1 medium peeled mango, seeded and diced

1 medium ripe papaya, peeled and diced

1 medium kiwi, peeled and sliced

1 ripe banana

1 cup lowfat plain or vanilla yogurt

ground cloves

Place all fruits in blender or food processor. Add yogurt. Cover and blend until smooth. If youlike a thinner smoothie, use 1/2 cup lowfat milk and 1/2 cup yogurt instead of 1 cup yogurt. Add a sprinkle of ground cloves to top when serving.

I will continue posting different websites and I will also post some more of my own in the future, again, if you have any comments or suggestions I love to here it! I also appreciate some of YOUR own recipes if you are willing to share! It would be so nice! Thank you!

A BlACKBERRY SWIRL!

Filed under: Uncategorized — leilarader @ 10:58 pm

blackberry_smoothie_250It has been a while yet again… I guess school has taken over lately but I am pretty sure this recipe will make up for it. How does a blackberry/ ice cream smoothie sound to you? It sounds amazing and I found this website: http://www.smoothie-recipes.com/fruit/blackberry.html which has all sorts of yummy smoothie recipes. Anyway I hope you find this as good as it sounds, and I am about to make it after I post this! I am pretty excited about it.  To get started you will need:1/2 cup blackberries(fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1/2 banana
1/2 cup milk once you have all of this ingredients, place it in a blender with only the milk, banana and blackberries first. After a slushy texture starts to form it is best to then add the vanilla ice cream! Blend until smooth, serve and enjoy!
